Big Bunga fires up in Galaxy

BIG Bunga was the big winner of the Galaxy Carnival at Border Park Raceway yesterday.

The gun greyhound, trained by Jason Mackay, jumped well and led all the way to win the Group Two Border Park Galaxy/GRNSW Country Challenge (420m) in a blistering 23.29 seconds and pocket the massive $25,000 winner’s purse for his connections.

Elite Blue Size, who challenged for the lead early, remained hot on the heels of Big Bunga and held on for second from fast-finishing Condong dog Tricky Uno.

“It was a great main event and a fantastic way to cap off what has been a great carnival for the club and generous crowds,” BPR secretary Stephen McGrath said.

In the semi-main events, the Club Banora Maiden Final (420m) was taken out by the Glenda Dart-trained Tom Fields in an electric 23.36s while the Surf Lorian Wauchope to Tweed Heads Challenge Final (520m) went to Spirtual Gift, trained by Keith Boan, in 29.76s.
